From alternative names to superfan videos, we countdown the best franchise moments ahead of next week's release
We’re all super excited about the launch of SingStar Celebration next week, and can’t wait to get the party season started! In the run up to the launch, we’ve unearthed some fun facts about SingStar, including our favourite community submissions!
- Did you know, over 115 different SingStar titles have been released since its first launch in 2004? That includes in over 15 languages around the world. There’s even a SingStar Bollywood!
- Amongst many different suggestions, we decided on the name SingStar. Originally we had quite a few options, including the name SingAlong.
- The most viewed community video of all time is this fan, (The_New_Guy) with over 31k likes. His rendition of Tina Turner’s classic ‘What’s Love Got To Do With It?’ is pitch perfect! He’s giving us serious SingStar goals!
- We hosted a SingStar Crystal Mics competition where over 11,000 fans entered. This was the winning video by super fan, SooziBags singing Mamma Mia by ABBA. We love, love, love her outfit and found ourselves dancing along….
- We’ve had some incredible fan submissions over the years, but here are some of the London Studio favourites. We particularly love this Storm Trooper expertly dancing and singing to Scissor Sisters, as well as a superstar chin belting out a Jamelia hit song!
- Last but not least, our favourite fan video from Christmas 2016 is this submission from arcticflea. We’ve been chuckling along as we watch him sing, whilst getting into the festive spirit in the office!
SingStar Celebration launches next week, 22nd November. We’re already practicing our favourite tracks and warming up our voices.
We can’t wait to see your song submissions from SingStar Celebration!
